Designer Label Encrustd Does Easy Elegance Effortlessly


New Bangalore-based designer label Encrustd specialises in creating contemporary apparel that is embellished, yet never looks gaudy. Their embroidered and bead-encrusted jackets, especially, have the LBB crew drooling.

Designs on you

Created by city-based couple Deepa and Vineet Chikarmane, Encrustd is a designer label that specialises in silk, and embellishments in the form of Parsi Gara embroidery and Chikankari from Lucknow. Yet, the label’s aesthetic is distinctly global. Visit their online store and you’ll see jackets, skirts, tops and dresses with embroidery and beaded embellishments that range from colourful and dense to muted and sparse, but are always elegant and never over-the-top. You’ll also see tops, slip dresses and light coats made in delightfully soft silk, and embroidered trousers and patterned trench coats that are as stylish as they are playful.

Statement casuals

Encrustd adds embellishments to everyday pieces such as crepe shirts, flared trousers and longline vests, which is what takes their pieces beyond the ordinary. Their clothes {and the chic styling tips you could glean from their home page} are lessons in day-to-night dressing, and are perfect for women who flit from boardroom to dinner parties, or from a formal engagement to their favourite club.
